Ford Rally Legends DVD


Ford Archive gems


This stunning collection of historic rarities – part of the Ford Archive Gems series – brings together three classic rallying films from the 1960s and ‘70s to offer a unique insight into a golden era of rallying and a rare chance to learn the tricks of the trade from some of the greatest drivers ever to grace a special stage!

‘Rally Driving’, from 1973, is a masterclass in the art by Scandinavian legends Timo Makinen, Hannu Mikkola and England’s Roger Albert Clark. Join these stars of yesteryear as they demonstrate how to put a full-blooded Ford rally car through the most challenging of stages. From classroom to cockpit, this is a fascinating insight into the skills of these legends. It also features the wry observations of blockbusting writer Jilly Cooper.

In 1979’s ‘Special Stage’ renowned English sportscaster Dickie Davies spends four days learning to tackle a Ford Escort rally car alongside Clark. Staggering on-board footage of the master at work is brought to life by ‘co-driver’ Davies’ lively commentary as they tear around the forest stage.

‘Seven Survivors’ chronicles the 1963 East African Safari, which saw more than 80 cars set out for the 3,200 miles of competition over some of the toughest terrain in the world; just seven made it back. Rally greats including Pat Moss and Erik Carlsson are featured in this rare film.
